Where has your passion for performance come from?

Watching the LA Olympics in my early years grabbed my attention in a way that is difficult to describe. I was simply awestruck by the silky skills and the utter dominance of Carl Lewis across four disciplines who managed to emulate the feat of the legendary Jesse Owens by clinching four Gold Medals

What gives organisations the winning edge?

Essentially it’s about getting full engagement – mind, body and soul and pointing that limitless potential in the direction of a vision that commands people’s thoughts, liberates their energy and inspires their hopes.
